♪ >> kimberly: tonight's top story, president obama in a big speech in kansas saying it's a defining moment for the american middle class. >> this is the defining issue of our time. this is a make-or-break moment for middle class and those fighting to get in the middle class. what is at stake is this is a country where working people can earn enough to raise a family, build a modest savings, own a home, secure their retirement >> kimberly: some people have different interpretations about this. eric bolling has a take. you can imagine. >> eric: oddly enough i didn't use the sound bites when i was reading it. it didn't jump out. 56 minutes of this communist, socialist manifesto. what did is when he said i believe this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot and everyone does their fair share. that sounds like socialism. this one, this is the killer.
ready for this? his theory, we have to admit the rugged individualism and skepticism o and that is american dna but the problem is it doesn't work. is this not the country with the highest standard of living and develops life-saving drugs? what do you mean our system doesn't work? of course it works. >> bob: you might want to get your facts straight. we are not the country with highest standard of living. finland is. i don't want to go there because the women are ugly and it's dark 22 hours a day. >> oh! >> bob: what obama did is formulated his campaign. he has a perfect opportunity. republicans will fight to the death to keep the millionaire tax cuts will not give you a break on the payroll tax cut. beyond that, at christmastime, this is great, isn't it? you have to deny people
extension of unemployment. obama has you over barrel. say all you want about the communist manifeste but in the end obama is winning this hands down. >> greg: doing it at the expense of working class americans. talk about people over a barrel, talk about the xl pipeline. that would help the working class. he is making a political maneuver not allowing that to happen. >> bob: america's working class gets the break when they talk about taking away the payroll taxes. >> greg: no one is talking about that. he is using it politically. >> bob: you don't wan think he wants to cut the payroll tax? >> dana: the pay are tax means this much when it comes to the economy. if you are president of the united states and lay the foundation again for the fifth time for your campaign, that you will run throughout the year, you think you'd have a bigger vision. what is the big vision? only thing he hangs his hat on the payroll tax cut?
>> bob: he asked for tax bill. deans the senate democrats put that down. the line about the millionaire tax cuts is fine. it's like talking about this nitpicky stuff. where is the grand vision? he went yesterday to kansas. 100 years after teddy roosevelt did. the 26 and 27 line of the press briefing was about teddy roosevelt and how president obama read it. that speech that teddy roosevelt gave was when teddy roosevelt took a huge left turn to be a main stream president. >> bob: why is it it in nicky about millionaires when republicans are prostitutes for millionaires? >> dana: can you give me an example of that? >> bob: yeah. every republican that continues to say we are not voting for a payroll tax cut unless we get it paid for and we are not going to hold hostage the millionaire tax cut under bush. >> eric: what is wrong with paying for it? >> bob: pay for it by taxing millionaires. >> eric: how about the job creation? >> bob: that is a political maneuver. >> kimberly: real quick.
>> eric: obama's fairness speech. 40 years ago, milton friedman gave is speech. he gave a speech about fairness. what is fair. life isn't fair, people. there is no reason one guy can hit a baseball, albert pujols, earn $20 million a year and another guy strikes out. >> kimberly: he is a great guy and does a lot for charity. >> bob: the university of chicago -- >> kimberly: here is the deal. what i love about obama, he can be different people. abraham lincoln, j.f.k., then administration began to crumble and he became ronald reagan, the great communicator and he called him the givee gifr now. channeling teddy roosevelt. he wants to tell us that no matter what we are greater together. listen to this. >> some are collectin sufferingm collective amnesia. we are better off when everybody else is left to fend
for themselves and play by their own rules. they're wrong. we are greater together than we are on our own. i believe that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot. when everyone gets a fair share and plays by the same rule. >> bob: you know that people are saying the same thing he is saying. the rich people don't play fair. >> dana: they will lose on think argument. >> bob: my foot. >> dana: they will. >> greg: president obama one great achievement he turned economic warfare to a hallmark card. like it the platitudes we're greater together. like the cards you got the your up at with a coin slot. it should be written you better be fair. it sounds phony. he is saying give me your money now. >> that is what it is. everybody knows it, bob.
>> bob: it was 50 on one side and 50 on the other. 99 on one and 1 on the other. >> greg: no, no, no. why is the middle class shrinking? he is making -- >> kimberly: there is war against the middle class. that's why. >> bob: the middle class and polls say overwhelmingly support obama on the issue. >> bob: why do they say -- >> greg: envy. bob, envy is the easiest thing to stir up. people don't like people -- >> eric: that is the definition -- >> bob: i'm envious of you and eric is doing better than me. i love you still. i want to see where he said he was ronald reagan. >> kimberly: he did. he did. >> bob: sure he did. >> kimberly: i want to do chris christie. >> eric: i want to do it, too. but this is crazy. earlier in the speech he blamed atm and bank teller proficiency for the reason the economy is hurting now. again, he went back to that americans are lazy. and our -- >> kimberly: we're not lazy. i don't like that. >> dana: should we talk
about somebody who is acting -- >> kimberly: okay. talk about someone actively, running for president. supposed to be the romney surrogate but he has power to the punch there when he gets out there. chris christie at a luncheon of the republican jewish coalition today talking about obama. >> this is a quote from the president of the united states. but we need to meet the moment. we need to up our game. mr. president. we need a leader who will lead us to the moment. who will help find what the challenges of meeting the moment means. then nt be cautious and safe and sit back and wait for someone else to do the hard work but get out of the chair and do the hard work yourself to make america a greater place. >> kimberly: i like this. he is speaking right now. >> greg: why don't you run, chris? you know? i don't like the tie/shirt combination. i couldn't see the tie. obama is truly our first green president. obsessed with green jobs, the putting green and the green in our wallet.
>> kimberly: that is good. i like that. >> bob: the jewish community, that must have been one of the smallest crowds there was. >> dana: a great crowd. newt gingrich got stand ogvation. >> eric: one wasn't invited is ron paul. >> dana: the thing that is amazing, talk about this for a second. chris christie makes a good point. he talks about national security piece and economic piece. two driving factors of the election. one thing that president obama said today if the republicans tie the xl pipeline to help the middle class, blue collar workers. if they tie it to the tax cut, he will veto it. but he tied the payroll tax to everything political. >> bob: he doesn't want the pipeline -- >> dana: he does. he just wants to move it around. >> bob: fine. takes time to figure out where.
>> dana: it doesn't. >> kimberly: this is a relatively conciliatory moment so we're going to break. the fights on for the presidential primary. oh, yeah. but is it hurting the g.o.p.? we debate it next. don't forget to e-mail us firstname.lastname@example.org. bob reads them all. ♪ ♪ the employee of the month isss... the new spark card from capital one. spark miles gives me the most rewards of any small business credit card. the spark card earns double miles... so we really had to up our game. with spark, the boss earns double miles on every rchase, every day. that's setting the bar pretty high. owning my own business has never been more rewarding. coming through!

♪ ♪ >> dana: welcome back to "the five." if the latest round of polls are any indication, the republican establishment may need to prepare for a gingrich candidacy. look at this poll. gallop has newt gingrich up 15 points over mitt romney. 37-22%. that is a substantial lead, right, eric? >> eric: yeah. look, they are the conservatives and they establish the republicans and the conservatives are still trying to rally behind someone. herman cain fell apart, stepped out. all the votes and supporters spread out amongst all of them. no one gained a lot because we
thought michele bachmann might -- i spoke to sarah palin and eventually one of the, two most likely romney should step over the line and say conservatives, i know i have issues in the past but i have to start embracing you, you need to embrace me and i have a chance to win. >> dana: before we get to bob's analysis and kimberly's, one thing that is interesting is the lead is substantial and across every poll. not just gallup poll. >> greg: to use a football metaphor, we're still in the fifth inning here. people are thinking about the holidays, avoiding their in-laws. maybe the media is concerned with this. people look at newt like the parent who comes home and finds out his son threw a kegger and says let's clean up the mess. mitt would just hire a maid. he is the adult to fix what is wrong with america. >> dana: romney said he would make closing arguments,
he said it on neil cavuto's she and said this is when he will seal the deal. too late? >> it's a question whether he can do it and be authentic doing it. not the guy he is. he skated all year. when you skate you don't get if combat mode. he needs to be in the last few debates. the poll by gallup is important. gingrich tripled his support in a month. tripled it. when romney stayed at 21 for the entire month, which has been the signature for the year, the other thing about gingrich here is we talk about the intensity factor. in iowa, gingrich has now won electability mantle. he is seen as more electable as romney, which is romney's poet. that is the equivalent of what in wall street? some guys making phone calls if you are organized.
gingrich is not getting his message out? >> eric: he doesn't have the money. >> bob: he has the money but hasn't converted it to organization. in iowa by this time, the caucus goers from 50 to 60% of the front runner to the organization. gingrich just now opening up the headquarters in the 99 counties. is mitt romney doing a stealth campaign in iowa? i don't know. the best campaign depends on some enthusiasm. he ain't there. >> kimberly: he better light candles and start praying. that's what i do. >> dana: are you surprised that some of the other candidates that cain stepped down that some of the other candidates haven't done better. that michele bachmann who won the iowa straw poll. >> kimberly: you would expect. he put out a direct call saying people who support cain can should gravitate toward her, because she was the tea party candidate. we didn't see it translate at all. what you saw is what bob said, newt tripled the number. you have been around a long,
long, long, long time. have you seen it happen before? >> bob: i saw it in the lincoln race. [ laughter ] no, i haven't seen it before. the other thing is the lack of -- this goes to romney. not suggesting that romney is a woundedandidate but he is no longer the front runner. we talk about this as a two-person race. it takes the others out of list. new hampshire doesn't always reward winner of iowa. there is not a republican that won iowa that went on to win -- >> kimberly: true. >> greg: the one difference between gingrich and everybody else, everybody is listening to the media and to democrats saying be careful. obama is popular. gingrich says i don't care. >> dana: this is one of the things, we do two things quickly, the question we asked in the opening of the show,
which is a new poll asks is the presidential race and the day-to-day back and forth, is it hurting the republicans? bob, you had insight. >> bob: the more they look at the g.o.p. field the less they like him. 13% say the more they like him. the problem from obama standpoint it should convert to increase in support from obama standpoint, but in fact it's about a split. 20% of the g.o.p. field is worse. it helps obama. 20% think it doesn't. didn't. he is not getting the support base he could get. >> eric: the poll, if you go to the first one, the g.o.p. field getting better or worse, it's taken as cain went through the step down procedure. but as you go through iowa, new hampshire, maybe south carolina, if candidates start to drop, conservative candidates start to drop. if they throw their support
behind one or the other, that may rally the whole conservative movement. >> greg: this is like teenagers playing truth or dare. you get all the gossip and afterwards you icky. >> kimberly: real quick. we discuss about the endorsement. newt got a key endorsement in new hampshire. that is significant. the numbers changed now in terms of people see him as electable. that is a big deal as well. >> dana: news today out of the -- a little news. we have don't have it confirmed that the white house, david axelrod, who is president obama's campaign advisor is now, they're looking back and going wait a second, we thought we were going to run against romney. now it's gingrich and it's nastier. >> bob: we better be careful. we need to talk about this in the next segment. it's an important issue. if you think that gingrich is beatable. reminiscent that we thought in
1980 reagan was beatable. you have to be careful. i argue that gingrich if he stays out of trouble is a stronger candidate than mitt romney. >> dana: i agree. coming up, did you hear about alec baldwin getting the boot from the american airlines flight? greg gutfeld has thoughts on that. i'm looking forward to that. daddy, come in the water!
♪ ♪ >> greg: welcome back to "the five." what kind of man in his 50s throws a tantrum over a toy? alec baldwin, of course. he got kicked off a plane when told he couldn't play electronic game. he slammed the restroom door so loud it spooked the pilot. it's too easy to rip baldwin over this. like this jerk.
alec thinks it's funny and all going on twitter. everyone in the plane had to wait for him to move his big fat rump. isn't he season unthinkable [bleep]? what a creep! devilishly handsome but still a creep. when you think about it? isn't baldwin the real hero here? two sets of rule in america. one for us and then one for the truly vulnerable. celebrities. someone has to stand up for the self-absorbed stars who are often bullied by the little people. sure the tantrum delayed everyone's departure, in the movie that is his life, they are just players. who cares? i condemn those who say the behavior wreaks of hypocrisy. he is pro-union but slurs the working class flight attendant. he is a greenie but flies cross-country constantly. in celebrity life, hypocrisy doesn't exist. being a phony bleeding heart allows you to be a real life jerk. i am starting a new charity.
buy alec a drone. send me donations and we'll buy a plane from a salt flat in utah to take him wherever he wants. no one has to deal with the unsufferable jerk and he can play the games in the sky like a giant man baby in oversized diaper. dana, i read this story and i wonder are there any good machinmenleft? >> dana: this is a question, which is what i asked in the break and i'm glad you thought it was worth noting. it's amazing he wasn't in a snuggie and hunkered down to play the game. this is why american women can't find good men to marry. i was lucky and met one on a plane. >> dana: it was not alec baldwin. >> dana: can you imagine this guy wants to play a video game so badely he will -- badly and he will risk his reputation and chance to be mayor of this city? >> greg: it sounds like a
guy to leave threatening messages on his daughter's phone. the tweet he put out said imagine for a second -- okay. do you have up there? the last flight with american, we're retired the catholic school gym teachers from the 1950s find jobs as flight attendants. imagine the catholics are replaced with muslims? >> eric: he would be reading the book and probably "an inconvenient truth" by al gore. did we notice -- >> dana: i don't think he reads. >> eric: baldwin's tweets came out and if you read those he was treated horribly by the flight attendants who were rude to him. he was minding his own business. parked at the gate. then you hear american airlines' side of the story. >> dana: good for them. rare a company will go back and like we're not going to be bullied. >> eric: he scared the pilots.
>> dana: worse than "snakes on a plane." he is. >> greg: giants on a plane. you often say that alec baldwin would make a great mayor of new york. how can you have somebody throwing tantrum on public tranortation being mayor? that's the last thing we need in mayor. >> bob: you are lying. i never said that. he need somebody to defend him. every plane i'm on they use it down the taxiways and nobody says anything about it. i think he has some point there. but the way he reacted to it is obnoxious. that is what his reputation is. bathrooms are supposed to be used to go to bathroom and snort drugs. >> kimberly: mile high club. >> bob: have you been there? >> kimberly: no! >> greg: let's not go in that direction. i don't want to be talked to someone after the show. how many time times that times c
baldwin hit on you? >> kimberly: he would find me offensive. catholic school -- i mean why are they taking on the catholic school teacher. >> dana: he is probably the guy that treats his staff bad. like someone is mean like the producer or somebody. >> bob: i think we need to be careful indicting all celebrities there. must be thousands of them flying every day. they're not all obnoxious people. >> greg: right. they're no fun. >> bob: fine, they're all jerks and like that. >> kimberly: what is that? >> eric: don't call it scrabble. they don't like -- it's like scrabble but they play it on the internet. >> kimberly: thinking man's game? >> greg: scrabble for swingers. >> kimberly: okay. that was a good comment.
on the program pierce morgan about shipping. morgan pressed him on the wealth. i believe we have something called the sox. >> you wouldn't dispute you have millions of dollars? >> first film i made $3 million. they gave me a check from this company right here. thank you. in 1989. i had a couple good years, "fahrenheit 9/11" and in those years i was in the 1%. >> you don't qualify every year. >> most years i don't. >> so that was pierce morgan show. >> michael moore looks a guy that plays video games and instead chooses to work out. >> dana: sometimes i'm in the 1% and sometimes i'm not. that is a good point. that is why the census comes
